Yeah, I don't doubt that for a second a well setup 3 link would have little to no downsides to the standard "5 link" (or radius for that matter). I was thinking more for simplicity sake while building, however with the anti-dive numbers the radius arms produce, do you notice an "unloading" when going up steep hills? Especially with how tall your rig is. I figure for my first kick at the can I'd rather keep things simple, I can always upgrade in the future.

Once again very nice work

yes im goin with all new joints, the upper rear is already new.. i checked into getn 7075 alum to make my own links from that.. but the price is just a lil to much right now for that.. just goin to do 2" dom for my links.. ive been thinkn on moving the front even more out, i got to move the steering box forward.. maybe 3" more out.. that will put me 5 total..
